Voice Caddie VC300

Several years have gone by and UComm Technology, the Korean company behind the Voice Caddy VC300 has improved […]

8 Golf Products You Can’t Live Without

The Sad State of Golf Media

Over the past several years I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in golf coverage from television, print, internet and social media outlets. I acknowledge that it is partly my fault, but I refuse to apologize for it. Traditional print media is dying a slow death and they know it. For a long time, bloggers controlled the […]

There are lots of game improvement devices and swing analyzers out there these days, but Game Game is quickly separating itself from the crowd.

Bridgestone True Balance Putters

Bridgestone Golf is one of the more conservative companies in golf.  They seem to know what they are good at, and they stick with it.

I’ve caddied lots of times (for fun) for women pros on the LPGA and the Symetra Tour. It’s one of the things I enjoy the most in the game of golf. I love being “on the bag” in pro events and helping friends on the tour in competition in big tournaments. Just being next to […]

Leupold GX-4i2 Rangefinder
